Herb Garden Trio
Before You Start
Find a good spot Make sure it s possible for your herbs to receive 6+ hours per day of light.
Want to speed it up? Consider soaking your thyme seeds overnight before setting up to see sprouts in as little as one week.
3 Essential Elements Make sure you’re able to provide the below maintenance in order to ensure you have happy herbs.
Plants love consistency! Water herbs regularly to keep soil moist.
Watering requirements will vary significantly depending on your environment and plant size, but its likely they will need watering every 1-4 days. We recommend checking the soil moisture daily for the first couple of weeks, until you get a feel for the right frequency based on your plants and environment.
Unsure about when? Just give the soil a poke! It should be damp and spongy (not dry and dusty or wet and sludgy!)
All plants need light, and edible plants need more of it than most. These plants require full sun in order to grow.
What is full sun? 6+ hrs/day of direct unobstructed sunlight.
Don’t have enough natural light? Consider purchasing a grow light
Ideal temperature for your herbs is 65-70°F
A general rule of thumb. If you re cold, you re herbs are probably cold too. If you’re warm, they could be feeling warm too.
Fill up the pots
Place the soil into the pots, a handful at a time, keeping the soil light and fluffy. Once full, press the top to even out surface.
Extra, extra! You can use a small amount of leftover soil to cover the seeds with soil in the next step.
Should I wash my hands? Next step involves touching some more soil.
Plant the seeds
Chives, Oregano and Rosemary all need light to germinate, so rather than poking them into the soil we recommend you scatter them and gently tamp the surface.
Don’t forget to label your herbs! Your kit comes with pre-made labels to make it easier to track each of your herbs progress.
Speed it up! Cling saran wrap over top of your pots until you see sprouts to speed up germination.
Can I wash my hands yet? Yes, set up is all done – but this is just the beginning! Keep going to learn how to keep your herbs healthy.
